Configuring the SLBC management interface

To be able to use FortiGate-7121F special SLBC management interface features, such as being able to log into any FIM or FPM using the management interface IP address and a special port number, you need to use the following command to select a FortiGate-7121F management interface to be the SLBC management interface.

You can use any of the FIM or FPM management interfaces to be the SLBC management interface. The following example uses the MGMT 1 interface of the FIM in slot 1. In the GUI and CLI the name of this interface is 1-mgmt1.

Enter the following command to set the 1-mgmt1 interface to be the SLBC management interface:

config global

config load-balance setting

set slbc-mgmt-intf 1-mgmt1

end

To manage individual FIMs or FPMs using special management ports, the SLBC management interface must be connected to a network.

Note

The slbc-mgmt-intf option is set to 1-mgmt1 by default (but this setting may not be visible in the default configuration). If you decide to use a different management interface, you must also change the slbc-mgmt-intf to that interface.
